Being visited by words

Some days they visit me frequently—


On other days they neglect

I wonder why they turn up when they do

I always have some for close comfort

Many dangle from cob-webbed corners— of the poem has been removed to facilitate for future submission. Thank you for visiting.

Napowrimo prompt:

Our (optional) daily prompt! This one comes to us from Stephanie Malley, who challenges us to write a poem based on the title of one of the chapters from Susan G. Wooldridge’s Poemcrazy: Freeing Your Life with Words. The book’s  table of contents can be viewed using Amazon’s “Look inside” feature. Will you choose “the poem squash?” or perhaps “grocery weeping” or “the blue socks”? If none of the 60 rather wonderful chapter titles here inspire you, perhaps a chapter title from a favorite book would do? For example, the photo on my personal twitter account is a shot of a chapter title from a P.G. Wodehouse novel — the chapter title being “Sensational Occurrence at a Poetry Reading.”

I chose one of the titles from Susan G Wooldridge's book, "Being Visited by Words" from Section 5 - Lights and Mysteries (53)

I also wonder why do some thoughts turn up when they do from their cobweb corners. You weave magic with your words Deepa :)
